Bug Description

Binary package hint: samba4

This bug was fixed in the package samba4 - 4.0.0~alpha15~git20110124.dfsg1-2ubuntu1

samba4 (4.0.0~alpha15~git20110124.dfsg1-2ubuntu1) natty; urgency=low

  * Add missing dependency on python-samba, required for testparm. LP: #641082
  * Add 03_wbclient.diff: Use system-packaged libwbclient.
   + Back out the new 'dc-info' command in wbinfo as libwbclient0 lacks some
     required symbols.
   + Solves unable to load errors. LP: #714344
  * Make sure /var/run/samba exists. LP: #646037
  * Add 04_setlocale.diff: Cherry-pick upstream fix to avoid setlocale() calls
    when used as a library. LP: #519025, #519025
  * Use system ldb headers so modules get built with the system ldb version.
